About Marie Ruhland

Husband and wife work in the local community. We enjoy living on the ocean and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the observation deck

Marie Ruhland purchased this studio in 1985

Why Marie Ruhland chose Hilo District

This is an ohana studio attached but separate from our home. It does not have an ocean view.

What makes this studio unique

Unit is clean and modern with cable modem internet access and cable TV. 3 minute walk to Honolii Black Sand beach. This beach is the best surfing beach in Hilo and has a great beach for relaxing, swimming, reading and sunbathing. Guests are able to use the lanai and observation deck and barbecue.

A great property! Comfortable clean and organized. Great location and loved the surfing beach. The deck is great and a beautiful property. The owner is really nice and takes great pride in her property and you can tell with all the nice touches. If we are able to come back we will stay there again.

Perfect stay near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental for 5 days and it was an amazing stay! The house was easy to find and Marie quickly greeted us and showed us the space. She was extremely kind and very helpful with questions we had. The space itself was perfect for 2 people. There is a futon that folds out so you could technically fit 4, but 2 is best if you want some space. There is a ceiling fan, AC, comfy bed, clean bathroom, kitchen and your own personal parking spot. We also hung out on the observation deck one of the days and met their 2 cute dogs and a few of their really chill cats. View from the deck is amazing and the house itself is literally steps from Honolii. Overall it was a really great stay and I would highly recommend! Mahalo!

Great stay, more comfortable than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

Marie was a fantastic host and created a very pleasant stay! The guest house was very comfortable and all of the amenities you would need and then some. Marie has a very organized binder that lets you know how to operate everything in the house and simple check in/out process. We especially enjoyed the cleanliness of the guest house, and high end shower products and linens provided. We used the guest house as a jump off point to visit local attractions including the tide pools so it is fine that the location is a couple miles out from downtown Hilo. Great stay and a great host would definitely recommend!

Great ohana house right on Honoli'i

  • 5 of 5

This rental is perfect for the adventurous couple that can appreciate the location! If the thought of walking out of the back gate with your surfboard at a fun local break and having evening cocktails or morning coffee on the deck watching the waves, then this place is perfect for you. It's got everything you need to feel at home. We will definitely be back!

Great location for exploring the east side

  • 5 of 5

Marie is a wonderful owner and could not be more generous or helpful. We were a group of three adults and even though it's a studio with one bathroom it worked fine for us! They have done a wonderful job landscaping and it really feels like paradise. I would absolutely recommend, especially if you are planning to do a lot of day trips. We basically made breakfast then took off for the day and then returned to make dinner and watch the sunset from the observation tower. Wonderful!
